I'm sure you've seen the free bom's all over the blogs these days. They are all so cute, but since I have lots I've already started I passed on all but just one! I just couldn't pass up these pretty little stitchery patterns.
Gail Pan's free bom called A Christmas Wish. Simple and pretty. After seeing someone else... who I can't remember...sorry.... pick similar CW prints, I decided to use my lovely reds and greens that remind me so much of Christmas. I'm going to use a bunch of different ones on the borders and I was able to still find a nice CW Christmas-y green for the borders too online.
Now someone asked if I was teasing you with my February quilt...not at all. I just didn't think a picture everyday showing the next 3 blocks made was very interesting! So here's a shot from a few days ago.
I swear I have been sewing like I'm shoving the deep mud aside to get each stitch sewn! S-L-O-W!! Ever have those dreams where you are walking for hours trying to get some place??? it's sorta like that. This quilt took forever and I don't know why??!! But guess what...
It's DONE!! The top anyway. On to pinning and getting it finished on Daisy Mae!
One more tiny item...a couple people asked about the books I showed. They are great mystery books and I love them. It centers around one gal who solves murders in her tiny town and if you decide to read them, you really MUST start at the beginning and read in order. It's not totally mandatory, but you won't get half the references if you don't, and that's half the fun!
****Paula asked for the name of the FIRST book! It's the Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder!
Here's a page listing all the books, and if you scroll down, you can see the books and the order written underneath each title. I realized that the Candy Cane Murders is actually 3 different novellas. Two are by ladies I read and one I don't, but it should be fun! I just finished the Peach Cobbler Murder this morning so I'm moving on to the Cherry Cheesecake Murder!!
